Dierks Bentley’s “Miles & Music For Kids” Raises Record Donation
Dierks Bentley wrapped the first leg of his RISER Tour over the weekend, with final stops across the Midwest. He also held his 9thAnnual “Miles & Music For Kids,” which raised $335,479 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, the biggest donation to date.
“I’m still coming down from the high of such an unbelievable last run of shows on the summer leg of this tour,” Bentley said. ”The fans in Cincy, Cleveland and Indianapolis were ready to close out their summer in a big way. Then we got back to Nashville, and I was totally blown away by the outpouring of support we got for this year’s ‘Miles & Music.’ This little event we started nine years ago has taken on a life of its own. I feel like I’m just a small part of this thing. It has really become about country music fans and bikers coming together to help our community and those kids. It’s incredible.”
There is no rest for Bentley, however. He will kick off the second leg of his RISER Tour with new openers Randy House and Eric Paslay, and several stops on the West Coast. Bentley recently celebrated his latest No. 1 single, “Drunk On A Plane,” and released his new single, “Say You Do.” For tour dates and ticket information, visit www.Dierks.com.
